Joan Rivers has based her career on her looks, first for being unattractive, then for being over plasticized. Now it seems that Joan has continued her plastic surgery routine, undergoing her 734th plastic surgery on her reality show.
78-year old Joan Rivers is a poster child for plastic surgery, undergoing numerous facelifts, a brow lift, cheek lift, eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty), Botox injections, laser skin resurfacing, chemical peels, and breast augmentation, in addition to other procedures (See Make Me Heal’s story on Joan Rivers’ plastic surgery).
Her daughter, Melissa Rivers is not a fan of her mother’s plastic surgery hobby. However Melissa has spent her fare share of time under the knife herself for a nose job, cheek augmentation and possible browlift. Given her age, she has likely also used dermal fillers like Restylane and Juvederm as well as Botox.
Miami plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Salzhauer says, “Joan Rivers is synonymous with plastic surgery. You may not like Joan’s results; as many believe it is too much, but she is seen as a pioneer of sorts for bringing plastic surgery much publicity and decreasing the stigma plastic surgery has faced for so many years. Her honesty and humor about ALL her procedures has made plastic surgery a more popular and comfortable subject for both celebrities and the general public alike.”
” There does come a point when a patient will reach a point of too much plastic surgery. I would say that Joan Rivers might have reached her limit with facelifts.”
Melissa’s attempt to stop Joan from going for her latest plastic surgery was documented on the duo’s reality show, where she tried to protect her mother from the knife with a “skintervention.” Her attempt failed and instead Joan did her plastic surgery recovery in Melissa’s house.
